A Rabbi And Martha Stewart Walk Into A Bar Mitzvah

Oy gevalt, if ever there was a magazine crying out for a mensch's touch, it's Jewish Living. Just check out this subheading:

It's not enough that you just brought home a beautiful baby boy--now you have to throw a party? These eight essentials demystify the mitzvah so your bris can be a breeze.
And "Where do you stand on metzitza, the Talmudic requirement to suck blood from the wound?" is only #2 of seven essential questions for your mohel?? Hello, what's #1?!?!

Hilarious photo, though. That mohel does nice work.

Jewish Living: It's A G-d Thing! [gawker]
